The AJC team covering conventions and politics

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution gave you a front-row seat at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Now we’re on our way to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention.

AJC political reporters Jim Galloway and Aaron Gould Sheinin, multimedia reporter Erica Hernandez, and State Politics and Government Editor Susan Potter will be on the ground in Philadelphia.

Galloway, who helped create our Political Insider blog, has covered politics for 40 years. He’s lost track of the number of conventions he’s covered. Sheinin has covered politics and government for nearly two decades, including the past eight for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He’s covering his fifth presidential election and his fourth national political convention. Potter has led the AJC’s political coverage for more than eight years.

An expanded editorial team will round out our coverage from Atlanta and Washington. AJC journalists will also team up with political reporters from our sister papers, the Dayton Daily News, Austin American Statesman and Palm Beach Post, to bring you every development from these pivotal campaign events.

Each day we will bring you news of Georgia's delegates and officials, the big speeches, protests and every big moment of the convention. To stay on top of every development, bookmark our convention page at Our coverage of the GOP convention can be found at
